Yay, I've read book 4 of the Percy Jackson series! Seriously, this book is more action packed compared to the other Percy books, I think. It's like every page is riddled with dangers, new demigods and gods to meet. I was literally writing a whole load of new characters [I don't know if they are part of historical Greek mythology or not] and wanting to research them. Action - this book I love. I am literally awaiting what may happen to any of the characters at every turn they make in the labyrinth. From Goodreads: This penultimate series installment finds Percy, Annabeth and the satyr Grover furiously working to prevent former camp counselor Luke from resurrecting the Titan lord Kronos, whose goal is to overthrow the gods. When the heroes learn that Luke can breach Camp Half-Blood's security through an exit from Daedalus's Labyrinth, they enter the maze in search of the inventor and a way to stop the invasion. Along the way they encounter a lifetime supply of nightmare-inducing, richly imagined monsters. Grover's own quest to find the lost god Pan, meanwhile, provides a subtle environmental message. Percy, nearly 15, has girl trouble, having become something of a chick magnet.
In this book, Percy lands himself into a sort of love triangle between Rachel Elizabeth Dare and Annabeth. Ahh, to be young and confused in love. Of course, I know who Percy would choose, there is a small bit of a spoiler from The Lost Hero. But it is cute, nevertheless. I love how the characters are all growing up nicely and are maturing into great demigods, or cyclops, or a satyr.
I also think that choice is one of the main themes in the book. Each character practically had to make a significant choice in this book at one point in another: whether which path to choose, or who to follow, there are always choices, which of course, we all encounter in our lives. It's just a matter of living with our choices that makes us who we are right now. We may not always be happy with those choices, but hey, sometimes we end up being better than what we think we should be because we always learn.
